It’s Day 33. Whoo hoo, it’s Friday! TGIF! Another workweek down! 🙂 It’s been a pretty decent week. Okay, I mean I did deal with some ‘monthly’ issues in the beginning of the week, but that’s all over now and I’m feeling pretty damn good.
So the plan for this weekend is to go out and enjoy the beautiful weather in San Diego. It’s called Sunny San Diego for a reason, and now since I seem to have an abundance of more energy, I want to take advantage of it and enjoy all the reasons I live in this awesome city. 🙂
It’s amazing how things have already begun to change for me since starting this journey. Feeling lethargic 24/7 is NOT A GOOD THING! I feel like I have missed out on so much because I was just too damn tired to do anything. And when I did do stuff, my energy was spent so quickly, that I didn’t get to fully enjoy what I was doing.
Such a major change to that and it’s only been 33 days. I can only imagine how I’m going to feels after 3 months, 6 months, or a year.
It’s going to be amazing…

Overall Feelings: I was again a little tired today. This time it was by the end of the day. Still, I think a lot has to do with not eating a snack in the afternoon at a minimum. I don’t know why I can’t seem to remember to bring a snack to work with me either when I leave in the morning, or when I come home at lunch. I need to figure out a way to remind myself to grab a snack…especially on these days that I do the cardio circuit workout for 60 minutes.
NOTES: In regards to the snack/meal situation that I am finding myself in, I’m probably going to end up changing my morning meal slightly. Within 30 minutes after my morning workout, I’m going to start consuming a high quality whey protein shake. Since I love the high quality and taste of the fish oil I get from sfh.com, I’m going to try their Peach/Mango ‘Recovery’ Whey protein.
So the plan is to consume that in the mornings right after my workout and then still cook my breakfast as normal, but take it with me to work and eat it 1-2 hours later. I have a couple tupperware containers that would be perfect as they are sectioned off into two different compartments, 1 for my fruit and one for the main meal portion. Perfect! 🙂
